Domaine Plouzeau, La Chapelle

This single plot is the example of a beautiful terroir, with wind sands, clay and limestone. Ilt’s giving a lovely wine, with fineness, elegance and soft and sweet tannins.

The manual harvest preserves the grapes, as well as gravity tanks.
Fermentation takes place thanks to indigenous yeasts without further additions. The vatting during 5 weeks minimum, at a controlled temperature, allows us a gentle but intense extraction of tannins.
The ageing, after the malo-lactic fermentation, during 18 months (12 months in « demi-muids » and 6 months in vats) in our cellar under the castle of Chinon.

Tasting comments:
